Fall 2014 Freshmen: Get Ready for WOW!

August 20-22, 2014

Marshall's Week of Welcome is an opportunity for freshmen to ease the transition into college and so much more! It's a time to find out what it means to be a student at Marshall University and get acquainted with campus before upperclassmen return. It's a time to learn how to take advantage of the academic and support services provided, meet new friends and HAVE FUN!

An integral part of Week of Welcome (WOW) is UNI 100 Freshman First Class, an introduction to academic structures and expectations of college life. UNI 100 is literally the first class most freshmen will take at Marshall. Successful completion of the course earns one hour of elective credit. The course is made up of two parts: (1) attending large group and small class sessions during Week of Welcome, and (2) attending eight additional 50-minute class sessions, once per week in the first eight weeks of the semester. To get an idea of what WOW is like, check out the 2013 schedule below.
